AISECT Group has partnered with National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Microsoft for their digital project operating in rural India. NSDC and Microsoft have collaborated recently to transform India into a digitally empowered nation through NSDC’s eSkill India portal. Further, Microsoft in association with NSDC has initiated a project which is a skill development programme for creating data entry executives exclusively for females, targeting beneficiaries from rural and semi-urban parts of India. The project’s target is to develop ICT-based skills in women residing in the project locations and generate employment. AISECT will implement the project in seven locations; Bemetara, Rajgarh, Narayanpur, Bijapur, Durg, Jhansi and Chitrakoot.
According to the organisation’s press release AISECT has been working for the upliftment and financial independence of females for a long time. AISECT, through its all-inclusive pro-women project, is bringing ICT centres for vocational training to women in rural and semi-urban communities. By combining free vocational training, skills development like entrepreneurship and job placement programs, the AISECT model has trained 400,000 marginalized girls in 400 districts in India till date. In addition to that number, 2,000 women entrepreneurs have also emerged from the program, successfully running their micro-enterprises, accounting for employment of 5,000 people today.
